KABUL, Afghanistan —

Afghan officials say a roadside bomb has hit a bus and killed 10 civilians, mostly women and children, in the south of the country.

Kandahar province's police chief Gen. Abdul Raziq said the Monday blast wounded another 12 people in Maroof district, roughly 60 kilometers (36 miles) northeast of Kandahar city.

Insurgents plant landmines and roadside bombs in the south and the east of the country to target Afghan and international troops, but civilians often are killed or injured as a result.
